Life Teen

The mission of St. Francis Life Teen is to lead teens closer to Christ.  Life Teen is an opportunity for high school students to deepen their friendship with Jesus Christ in a unique environment that blends catechetical learning with interactive and social activities. The aim  is to further one’s understanding of Jesus as a personal God who truly loves us unconditionally, thus leading to conversion and the sharing of that encounter with others.

Upcoming Events

Due to extenuating circumstances, we have had to change our plans for Fall Retreat.  We will no longer be having retreat at St. Francis on October 24, but St. Basil the Great has invited us to join them for retreat November 7th at Hiram House Camp!  Fall Retreat will start at 8:30 am and end at 11:00 pm and will include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All teens in grades 9-12 are welcome. We will spend the day diving into the story of the Prodigal Son and take a step back from the busyness of daily life to focus more on our relationship with God, family and friends. Retreat is an opportunity to deepen your faith through prayer and the sacraments. We are very excited to be joining St. Basil’s for this retreat!  If you have signed up for the retreat already at St. Francis, Cari will contact you about the new retreat option.  Click here for the link to the online form.  Forms are due October 23, 2020. 

Life Teen Parent Life 

Parent Life is a site dedicated to educating parents on teen culture so that they can be empowered to fearlessly and faithfully guide their teenagers through the modern world.

Our current Parent Life pick is Staying Connected to the Church During COVID-19.  Life Teen has resources for teens and their family during this time of distance to help you stay close to God and grow in your faith.  

Core Team

At the heart of a youth ministry program is not workbooks, but people. It is through these people that the love of Christ is embodied and a young person comes to know of God’s love. At St. Francis of Assisi, these are our Core members. Adult men and women giving the greatest gift of all, God. If you want to learn how you can get involved with Core Team at St. Francis, contact Cari.
